Dorfman revealed that before he died the comedian had given permission to a woman named Cat Rhinehart to film his daily life.

The manager asked her to forward all the footage - which she did in 2015.

However, according to Dorfman the comic told him to trash the video.

The manager claims the hard drives remained in his possession until the fall of 2016 when he threw them away after he moved his business from Tennessee to Alabama.

After hearing Dorfman's testimony the judge ordered him to immediately surrender and turn over the hard drives if they are ever located or anyone he knows comes into possession of them.

May died aged only 45 on Oct 6, 2017.
